Subject: I remember this show.
One good thing is that they knew they were recording for live albums which probably added focus.
I will add that I Been All Around This World is my favorite Jerry song and it was amazing seeing it. It was also very interesting seeing them play The Other One, which was a rarely-played throwback to the psychedelic days.

Subject: My 1st show !!
Needlesstosay.....I was grounded for like 6 months, and the only time I was allowed out was to see the shows...Boy did I party my ass off...
Ya see...my mom had done just about the same thing to my grandparents about 40 yrs earlier,except it was ole Blue Eyes...Frank Sinatra...so my dad was convinced by my mom to let me go to the shows...then I could finish my grounding...DAD agreed...whewww!
ps. The grounding never really lasted..beyond Xmas time that year....Happy to tell that story
Subject: Get it for the Drums alone!
During Drums > The Other One, the great jazz drummer Billy Cobham sits in with the band. This leads to one of the best Drums segments out there. To see it on video is really something; there comes a point where all three drummers are swarming over The Beast like salmon going upstream. Truly something to behold. The transition to The Other One is great, although sitting here listening to the download, it is quite evident that the video segment cut out some of the drums, once Cobham starts playing the talking drum.
Also, kudos to Jim Wise for another great audience recording.
Further details as I listen more.
